Faculty Soccer World responds to Paul Finebaum’s touch upon Texas
ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum had upset fans of the Texas Longhorns on Wednesday morning.
On Wednesday morning, Finebaum stated that Texas was no longer a nationally relevant program. He said the Longhorns aren’t nearly as big a deal as their fans think they are.
“Texas is no different than for Texas fans,” said Finebaum.

Is Finebaum right?
It’s been a while since Texas competed for national championships, but the Longhorns are still a pretty big brand. If Texas were really irrelevant, Finebaum – or ESPN – wouldn’t even have to talk about it.
Still, it is clear that Texas must rise in the Steve Sarkisian era.
“I understand Texas had a really bad decade in football. But to say that Texas is way behind Jimbo is extremely ridiculous. Give me a break, ”wrote one fan.
“Well, Mr. Finebaum, don’t forget where money is, is relevance, even if there is a dead space for years, it always comes back. Texas will probably be relevant again with this coach. But never underestimate the power of money .. with these Go Dogs, ”added another fan.
“Finebaum thinks if you are not Alabama then you are nothing. Its standards are the moon for everyone, ”wrote another fan.
Finebaum may exaggerate a bit with his comments, but it is clear that Texas has long since ceased to be a national power. Longhorns fans naturally hope that this will change under Sarkisian.
